It’s been a long time coming, but Apple has finally implemented useful notification features in iOS 8. Interactive notifications are essentially Apple’s version of quick reply (or quick actions) that will be available for a wide variety of apps when iOS 8 is released. We’ve had some time to explore the beta version today and put together a quick video to show off iOS 8’s new notification features.

There have been quite a few quick reply tweaks made available for jailbroken devices, but finally Apple has decided to step it up and bring this long-awaited feature to iOS natively. Check out the video below and let us know what you think about interactive notifications.
